AFI Awards 2010

AFI Awards 2010 - As if there wasn't enough going on today in terms of awards announcements, the American Film Institute ( AFI) has announced their top ten American films of the year and it includes some familiar faces not to mention nine of my current ten film predicted for Oscar's Best Picture nominees. The only difference at the moment is I have The King's Speech in my top ten while the AFI includes The Kids are All Right, which is currently my #11 pick, though it has also been in my list of ten much of the year and I expect may end up in my ten before the Oscar nominations are announced in January.

As for The King's Speech, it wasn't ignored outright as it was named alongside Davis Guggenheim's education doc Waiting for "Superman" in the "Special Awards" category.

Check out the list below, which is ordered alphabetically, and leave your thoughts in the comments below.

Urban Meyer Stepping Down

Urban Meyer Stepping Down - Well, it appears as if it’s deja vu all over again.

Less than 12 months after retiring and then un-retiring, Urban Meyer is apparently stepping down as Florida’s head coach. There’s no word on if he will be stepping back up tomorrow.

Urban Meyer Stepping Down

According to Todd Wright of Sporting News radio, GatorUpdates.com and AOL Fanhouse‘s Brett McMurphy Meyer will announce at a 5 p.m. ET press conference Wednesday that he is resigning/retiring as the Gators’ head coach. There are no further details available at this time, other than GatorUpdates reporting over the weekend that Meyer checked into a hospital the week of the UGA game and has been undergoing tests since.

Obviously, we’ll have more on this story throughout the day and well into the night…

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy - The mystery of Matt Cassel missing practice Wednesday coupled with the Kansas City Chiefs promoting quarterback Tyler Palko has been solved.

The team has announced that Cassel underwent an appendectomy on Wednesday morning. The Chiefs say they expect Cassel to return to work this week. Returning to work and being ready to perform well in the team’s biggest game of the season on Sunday against San Diego are two different things. ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting the Chiefs are viewing Cassel as being questionable to play in the game.

Clearly, this is terrible timing. The Chiefs are 8-4 and would take a major step toward the playoffs with a win over the Chargers. Cassel has played very well for the past two months. If he can’t play, the brittle Brodie Croyle would face the Chiefs in his first action of the season. Croyle last played in Week 13 of the 2009 season.
